Project Details


The Ocean Energy Scale-up Alliance (OESA) is an accelerator project aiming to develop and deploy large scale marine energy pilots. The transnational partnership under the lead of the Dutch Marine Energy Centre (DMEC) combines expertise from 6 European countries from the North Sea Region.

The following three goals will accommodate a larger number of technology deployments in the future:

To develop a transnational scale-up offer for marine energy technologies, in which the services of large European service providers in offshore and marine energy are combined.
To accelerate the development of four technologies, leading to the deployment of 20 MW in large scale pilots.
To bring together stakeholders from the offshore industry, investment business and policy makers in a stakeholder platform and show the collaborative potential of marine energy in order to secure their support for future deployments in the ocean energy sector.
